Trinity Ranch, Okeechobee, Florida

RSNC Sanctioned Ranch Sorting Shows

2013 Winter Circuit dates:

  • January 19
  • February 9
  • March 9 - Cancelled
    • While there are no indications and positive tests at Trinity Ranch, Okeechobee, Florida, Frankie Chesler of Trinity Ranch, Okeechobee, Florida has made the decision to cancel her RSNC March 9, 2013 competition to do her part to safeguard the equestrian community.  This effort comes as the scare of positive cases from Neurotropic Equine Herpes Virus-1 (nEHV-1), which is the neurological strain of Equine Herpes Virus 1 (EHV 1).  Outbreaks of nEHV-1 are highly contagious and have a significant risk of mortality.

      There is still only one confirmed nEHV-1 case from the HITS Ocala, Florida showgrounds who is in stable condition at the University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, Florida recovering.  The HITS showground is under quarantine with competition as usual, however no horse is permited to leave the showgrounds.  Meanwhile, the FTI Consulting Wellington Equestrian Festival announced that two horses were tested for EHV-1 after coming in contact with a horse that had tested positive for EHV-1 (NOT the neurological strain)  were in Federation Equestre International (FEI) stabling at the Palm Beach International Center were found negative.  The quarantine on FEI stabling has been lifted and competition will continue as scheduled.
      The previous biosecurity protocols that were enacted on February 22 are still in place and will remain until further notice.

      Positive cases have been reported from Loxahatchee and other areas throughout Florida and Frankie feels it is incumbent upon to make this decision for the future welfare of all equines.

      Frankie is still planning on holding the April 13, 2013 RSNC competition.  All owners are encouraged to speak with their veterinarian if they have additional concerns or questions.  Frankie thanks and appreciates everyones understanding.
